Protecting You Against The Lasting Impacts Of Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
If you are the victim of a false or unreasonable restraining order, you need an experienced attorney to defend your rights. Sometimes, restraining orders are abused as an attack against you and are not based on truth. Whether your spouse is trying to win favor in a divorce or child custody proceeding or attempting to be malicious, a restraining order is not something you can ignore.
A restraining order may keep you away from your home and kids and prevent you from working or living normally. It can also have lasting impacts on your relationships and reputation. Violating a restraining order can result in arrest, jail time and a hefty fine. Our experienced attorneys will defend you against restraining orders to protect your rights and freedom.
